The pinnacle of all the mathematical competitions open to school students is the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). The first IMO was held in Brasov, Romania in July, 1959. Seven countries participated in this olympiad: Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union. Each country sent a team of 8 contestants, except the Soviet Union which sent only four. The second IMO was held in the following year again in Romania.
